Epic College Recruiting FAIL

The AP reports Drake University’s recruitment materials sent out via direct mail to prospective students featured a big, bold “D+”, which also appeared on the university’s admissions website before negative reaction spread throughout the internet.

For now, it looks like the D+ messaging has been removed from the site and replaced with “The Drake Advantage” and a giant plus sign. Let’s get down to brass tacks, if Drake really wants to get students to enroll, just slap a giant pic of this lil’ dude on EVERYTHING…

THIS is A+ advertising.

I don’t see the Georgia Dawg rockin’ the cape and crown. ADVANTAGE, Drake.
